Winter Guests

Motor Man and I returned home a couple of days ago to find a few guests in our yard.

So beautiful. I know hunting is “necessary”; it just isn’t something I could ever do.

This is “Mama Deer”. She’s been a regular visitor for several years, and we’ve seen her with little ones at least twice. She has a lame leg, and it hurts me to watch her walk.

Here, deer, have a little something to drink.

No need to look over your shoulder: you’re safe in our yard.

We’re expecting 2-4 inches of snow in our area later today, with night-time temps dropping into the teens in the next couple of days. I’m sure our guests will be bedding down in the marsh to weather out the storm.
